that and then devised a program-- let's say increasing the level at which anybody is eligible in medicare, that would cover all of the uninsured. you could do it in a bill that would be one page long, and would affect nothing else in health care. and what does he do instead? he completely changes health care in america in every way in a bill that is 2,000 pages long that even today nobody quite understands the extent -- >> rose: suppose he did just what you said. what column-- he said, "look, i want to provide the kind of health care for all americans that medicare provides for americans over 65." would charles krauthammer have written a column saying here's a guy who understands a way to deliver a medical care to the american people that has been tried and is successful in other places? >> if he had said, as you said, just a moment ago, i don't want to see 40 million americans who don't get health care, and i will provide a program that will do it with a simple stroke, i'm going to say the poverty level isn't enough to be eligible for medicare. but what is it, four times or whatever? and i'm going t

love the anecdote about the guy who said "i don't want the federal government fooling with my medicare!" you know, it's this idea that what they remember is rhetoric. and kennedy "ask not what your country can do for you." reagan "morning in america. the pride is back." so i think we make connections. and television. television is enormously important. kennedy froze if our lives at the age of 96. if he were alive he'd be 96 years old. but if he walked into this room at the age of 46 he'd look like one of us. he'd still have a kind of presence. >> you give us a lot more credit.
